Patio is updated with heaters in Pecan

Dining options at the Pecan clubhouse are plentiful for 2013. The Brazos Room patio has received a recent update and is ready for members’ use. Heaters are a new amenity of the space, so enjoying the view and staying warm at the same time are possible.

The new year also continues favorites in the clubhouse dining room, as well as specials offered weekly. Wednesday’s ever-popular chicken buffet is still on the menu, as is Sunday morning’s breakfast buffet and Sunday evening’s spaghetti and meatball fare.

To make meal reservations at the club, call 817-573-2641, and for curbside-2-go orders, call 817-573-2650.


Breakfast Club meets each Wednesday morning at Pecan’s clubhouse, and this week folks will welcome Realtor Buddy Almy presenting “The Genealogy of the Almy Name.”

Come at 8 a.m. for breakfast and the program.

Pecan Fire Chief Dave Raffa congratulates volunteer fire department members Scott Christy, Carlos Oviedo, and Billy Volger, all of whom graduated from the Weatherford College Fire Academy last month and are now certified firefighters in the state of Texas. Thank you to these gentlemen, and all of the men and women in our emergency service groups, who keep us safe each day.


In more emergency volunteer news, Linda Boggs writes that the Volunteer Fire Department/Emergency Medical Service (VFD/EMS) Auxiliary presented a check for $11,218 to Fire Chief Dave Raffa and EMS Chief Sandra Winfield in December.

The check represents a year’s work of the Auxiliary’s fundraising projects, the proceeds of which support the VFD/EMS and in turn benefit all Pecaners.

The next meeting of the Auxiliary is Monday evening at 7 at the Charlie Lee EMS Building; all interested Pecan ladies are invited to attend.
